Winslow, your impression of EW Black is the same as mine: thin and one-dimensional, but nevertheless, a pretty good bourbon flavor. I probably won't buy it again, but I won't turn my nose up at it, either.

When I want Heaven Hill whiskey, it will usually be Elijah Craig 12-yo or Evan Williams Single Barrel. When I was in Atlanta, last week, I looked closely at a bottle of EC 18-yo, but it was about $36 and I decided against it.
